“The United Nations is in Iraq to help Iraqis”

From President Bush’s speech at Fort Bragg, N.C. 6/28/05:

“In January 2005, more than 8 million Iraqi men and women voted in elections that were free and fair and took place on time…. In the past year, the international community has stepped forward with vital assistance. Some 30 nations have troops in Iraq, and many others are contributing nonmilitary assistance. The United Nations is in Iraq to help Iraqis write a constitution and conduct their next elections.”
